While generally safe and effective when prescribed by a veterinarian, Yunnan Baiyao may cause side effects in some dogs. The most common side effect of Yunnan Baiyao is stomach upset i.e. vomiting and diarrhea. 

Yunnan Baiyao should not be used in dogs with known hypersensitivity or allergy to the ingredients. 

Yunnan Baiyao should be used with caution in dogs with liver disease and is often used every other day or for a limited period.  Best to add milk thistle for this reason to help the liver.

Yunnan Baiyao has been shown to be safe if given with antibiotics, vaccines, pain medication and other drugs such as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs.

It is not approved for use in pregnant or lactating pets.

This herbal supplement is intended for short term (acute) use. There have been limited studies to identify side effects of long-term use in dogs and cats.  There is some possible evidence that this medicine may elevate liver markers if given daily for prolonged periods of time.  

After the acute phase it is best to dose on alternating days, or for a 5-day on 5-day off cycle that repeats.  

More Information
Yunnan Baiyao may be combined with a tonic formula such as mushroom extracts or neutral ginsengs. [Note: this is especially beneficial for dogs and cats taking Yunnan Baiyao long term.]

Broad beans, fish, citrus (sour), dairy or cold foods should not be taken within one day after administration. Yunnan Baiyao has a warming quality while these foods have a cooling quality. Cold foods require strong digestion as well. Therefore to achieve the best results when taking Yunnan Baiyao, they should not be combined together.
Other hot consumables, like chicken and goat meat are indicated as promoting the healing effects.
If taking Yunnan Baiyao makes you dizzy or upsets your stomach, take it with warm soup.
